Do Dansk heat exchangers include gaskets, clamps & levers required for installation? I'm looking at model no. W01331608304DSK, ASIN B001FRPNXQ. Also, I believe the right and left side heat exchangers are mirror images of each other - if I order 2, will I get 2 left-side or 2 right-side exchangers, rather than 1 left-side and 1 right-side?

In this case I can't find any information one way or the other so I would just assume that NO they don't come with anything.

Order everything you need separately just to be on the safe side, believe me if it does come with anything then the parts you bought separately will come in handy the next time. You don't want to be in the middle of a replacement waiting for parts.

This product is ONLY the LEFT side, only order ONE.

This product is ONLY the RIGHT side, only order ONE.

Thanks, Jaygyver. I'm also worried about whether these heat exchangers are heavy duty (finned on the inside), or the cheaper type that are spiral ducted around a J-tube. I've got to have the heavy duty type to stand up to the 35 degree below zero weather we get here in Alamosa, Colorado -- the spiral ducted type will never heat up in these temperatures.

I believe they are similar but not exact replacements, as in, they do have the fins on the inside, just not as many as OEM. But way better then the el-cheapo's. From what I understand they are as close to OEM as you can find now a days.
When I changed from a stock FI '75 Super to a 1915cc dual carb I was able to find a couple of used still decent '70's OEM heat exchangers exactly like the wife's '72 so I was able to keep heat in the car and get the dual exhaust look that I wanted.
